WordPress themes niche is more crowded than ever. A lot of wordpress shops are trying to take their piece of this big pie which is wordpress. But hey, there`s room for everyone. Although many people are building and releasing themes, let`s admit, some not as good as others, very few of them know what makes a good wordpress theme. It`s all about design, functionality and versatility.

Great wordpress themes are made to last forever. Although design trends are changing each month, a well crafted wp theme must stand for at least a few years, until the user will start thinking to upgrade to a newer one. In this technology era, when people are switching from computers to tablets and smartphones, the main keyword in wordpress design is “responsive”. A good wordpress theme has to be able to fit on any type of screen, small or big. And last but not least, the user who`s making use of the theme has to build whatever website he wants, even if is portfolio, product presentation or business website.

With these key factors in mind, I gathered the most versatile, beautiful and fully functional wordpress themes built in April. They`re not a few (35 more precisely) and they`re great!
